Alabama has one of the best rushing attacks in the country. But, it's not the best, not even in the Crimson Tide's own conference.

Florida currently leads the SEC in rushing yards, at 259 yards per game. The Gators also lead the league in scoring offense and total offense.

The Crimson Tide knows they'll face an explosive attack in Gainesville on saturday night.

"Their strength as a team has been their ability to run the ball, and to consistently make big plays running the ball,” Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban said. They're a great screen team. They've got a very good passing game. They haven't thrown the ball down the field a whole bunch, but when they have, they've been pretty effective doing it."

Alabama leads the SEC in scoring defense and total defense. The match-up to watch is the Tide's run defense against the Florida offense.

Alabama is allowing less than 46 yards per game on the ground so far this year. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. on Saturday night right on WTVY.
